Sweet Nothings in Downtown Summit for #SmallBusinessSaturday

Sweet Nothings in Downtown Summit for #SmallBusinessSaturday

#HipNJ spent #SmallBusinessSaturday in Downtown Summit with Beyond Main. #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino got to speak with co-owner, Donna Puzella, of Sweet Nothings.

Donna, a Summit native and resident, co-owns with her sister Elisa. A true family owned and operated business, every member of the family works at the shop, from Donna and Elisa’s mother Giovanna, to Elisa’s sons, Jack and Zachary, to Elisa’s husband, Scott, who does the “behind the scenes.” Before the store, Donna worked in the cable television industry for many years in marketing. Donna and Elisa are full of hometown pride and committed to supporting their local community.

Donna loves celebrating small business and tells us why it’s so important to shop small, “Small business is the foundation in which this country was built on. Without small businesses, there wouldn’t be anything else.” They are embedded into the community and Sweet Nothings, like other local small businesses, support local schools and organizations.

Sweet Nothings is the sweetest spot in town, featuring a carefully curated collection of confections, chocolates, candies, truffles and gift items. All of their offerings are thoughtfully selected and packaged with attention to detail. Whether you are entertaining, gifting or indulging… stop in and they will have just what you want and need. Their gift baskets are unique and “flavorful” and always custom designed. Sweet Nothings’ client gifts have been said to be “memorable,” “clever,” and “the best gifts ever received.” They’re also pleased to offer personal and home accessories as well as gadgets and goods that are whimsical, useful, graceful and always tasteful.

So checkout Sweet Nothings, where sweet dreams come true! They’re open every Sunday through Christmas, since there’s always something to celebrate.
